How can I start my EB-5 visa process as a college student abroad?

I am currently an undergraduate student based in India. If I wanted to drop out of college and start my EB-5 application process, would that be feasible? I have class 10th and class 12th mark sheets but I was wondering about the educational requirements for the EB-5 visa. What are the guidelines for this kind of situation?

The EB-5 visa program does not have educational requirements. It is very common for an EB-5 investor to be located abroad when the I-526 petition is filed.

You do not need to drop out of college in India to proceed with an EB-5 case. The EB-5 process will take an extended period of time. You can proceed with an EB-5 case and continue with your college studies in India. There are no educational requirements for the EB-5 process. As a first step, you need a consultation appointment with a U.S. immigration attorney. During the consultation appointment, the U.S. immigration attorney will explain the legal requirements for an EB-5 case and the process of an EB -5 case.

You can file the EB-5 petition whether you are in the U.S. or abroad. There are no educational requirements for an EB-5 petition.

There are no educational requirements for EB-5. If abroad, you can file now but you have to wait until USCIS approves and the Department of State schedules your interview in India and that could take a few years.

EB-5 is for permanent residency. You may start this while still being in India. If you want to be in the U.S. while awaiting approval, then you need to apply for a nonimmigrant status and be approved for a visa.

There is no educational requirement. Just pick your investment and file the visa application.
